Nashville, TN – Summertime means outdoor grilling time for many Tennessee residents. It is also the peak season for grilling fires. The Tennessee State Fire Marshal’s Office urges outdoor cooks to keep fire safety in mind as they start up the grill this summer.
“Practice safety, whenever you grill,” State Fire Marshal Julie Mix McPeak said. “Place your grill well away from siding, deck railings, eaves and overhanging branches.” She added, “Never leave a grill unattended.”

Pasadena, CA – A new image from NASA’s Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer, or WISE, shows the candle-like Flame nebula lighting up a cavern of dust. The Flame nebula is part of the Orion complex, a turbulent star-forming area located near the constellation’s star-studded belt.
The image is being released along with a new batch of data from the mission. Last March, WISE released its all-sky catalog and atlas containing infrared images and data on more than a half billion objects, including everything from asteroids to stars and galaxies.
